Youth Unemployment

Published By: IZA - Institute for the Study of Labor | Published Date: June , 2015

This paper looks at recent trends in youth unemployment and joblessness and seeks to clarify some issues related to the nature of the youth labour market ‘problem’. During the recession, the prevalence of long-term unemployment amongst the young increased by more than one third. Moreover, this is not the only recent negative trend in young people’s labour market experience with longer term consequences. In recent years, there has been increasing recognition that joblessness or NEET as it is now usually called, and not just unemployment per se is an issue for concern. Similarly, the emergence of high levels of temporary and part-time employment amongst young people and the longer term impacts of these contractual forms is also becoming a significant issue.
